http://forums.fedoraforum.org – The system is running great in fedora 7 or 12 with 6 sata drives installed. I tried to install 2 more sata drives(total 8 drives), tested some combinations: 6 drives in sata ports and 2 in sas ports, or 2 in sata ports and 6 in sas ports... the BIOS can detect all 8 drives, but the fedora 7 and 12 just detect 6 sata drives. It could be problem of sata/sas drivers of Linus. The chip set: Intel ESB2(6 ports) + LSI 1068E SAS controller(8 sas/sata ports) Linux: Fedora 7 and Fedora 12 Any one does have experience with system installed more t (HowTos)
